Baltimore to run out of federal eviction prevention funds by mid-March, officials say

January 25, 2023

Baltimore will exhaust its federal eviction relief money by mid-March, officials told members of Baltimore City Council Tuesday, making the city the latest to sound the alarm about dwindling funds. Since 2020, the Mayor’s Office of Children and Family Success has received $82 million dollars in local, state, and federal funding for emergency rental assistance as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The money is paid directly to tenants who lost income during the pandemic and have fallen behind on rent and is sometimes paid directly to landlords preparing to evict tenants for nonpayment.
